Not very for a mechanic. If you want to do it yourself get a shop manual. Make sure the negative battery terminal is completely disconnected. It just involves removing the air cleaner, distributor cap, and distributor hold down bolt (pretty sure is a 9/16. Also, are you sure you want to change the distributor? Did it fail, my 89 Caprice Brougham's distributor is fine. If you are getting bad ignition it is probably not the distributor. Check for cracks.

I changed the battery in the watch and don't know how to set it. I keep getting an ERROR and won't connect!

IT IS A BAD IGNITOR ON THE INSIDE OF THE DISTRIBUTOR.

it has to be the distributor cap or rotor or wires...plug wires.

If you are not getting spark, the distributor is common to fail. It is hard to tell from the question if you changed it or just the cap and rotor. Also, do you have fuel pressure. That could be a fuel pump. If you have neither fuel or fire, that could be aa computer or wiring issue.

Bad coil? Bad distributor rotor? Bad distributor cap?

Is it getting spark?, if it isn't getting spark to the plugs and you have a HEI distributor the ignition control module could be blown, take cap off and replace the module, it's the thing with the wires plugged to it inside the distributor.

Have you checked for trouble codes in the engine computer? Do you have access to a scan tool? You need a scan tool so you can see if the cam and crank sensors are reading. Are all fuses good? Is the battery full charge? Is there voltage to the distributor? Is the distributor turning?

Battery is getting old and will not hold a charge or there is a drain on it. Battery is getting old and will not hold a charge or there is a drain on it.

The battery light will be illuminated on the dashboard and later the battery will go flat as it is not getting charged Garages can check this for you if your battery is frequently getting flat.

User Avatar

you will have to tell a few more things about the car, Have you ever changed the fuel filter,Has it everbeen tuned? Is the battery voltage good?

User Avatar

Two things come to mind: 1 - your new battery could be bad; 2 - you have a wiring problem. You may have a short somewhere that is pulling down the battery. Also, check the battery post connectors where they are fitted onto the wire. Something loose there can cause you grief, too.

if you think your grand am has a distributor, you might think about closing your hood and getting someone else to fix it

It has changed by getting warmer.

User Avatar

Have you checked all of the High Tension leads from the distributor to the plugs, or just one or two? Same with HT lead from Coil to Distributor, Check Distributor cap for cracks

depends on what way you are testing it but you either have a bad connection between the alternator and the battery or your battery is bad and cant hold the charge what voltage are you getting
